AI model is consisted of detection, data pre-processingclassification ensemble model. We applied YOLO 3 to detect vertebral body from radiography,used data pre-processing to reduce image noisyenhance contrast, integrated ResNet34, DenseNet121, DenseNet201 into AI mode. Our result reveals the ensemble model has better performance in accuracy, sensitivityspecificity.
Scientific Breakthrough
AI deep learning ensemble model consisting of ResNet34, DenseNet121DenseNet201 to provide doctors in clinical diagnosis. Regarding the clinical application, doctors upload DICOM image to cloud server of radiology department,wait 45 seconds, the model will automatically report the final results about vertebral body fracture location labelingfracture probability.
Industrial Applicability
AI deep learning ensemble model can help doctors identify fractured vertebral on plain radiographs. AI model is a good solution to support them make accurateefficient diagnosis, especially in ER, doctors might not always be immediately available for medical consultation. The purpose of using AI model is assist diagnosis, early treatment, reduce waste,precision medicine.
